Olympus E-330 SLR Review
Playback menu options:
The E-330 can display a review image with varying amounts of overlay information on
it. Pressing the INFO button cycles you through the following review modes: image
only, image+info 1 (shown above), image+info 2 (shown below), image+shooting info,
image+histogram, image+hilight and image+shadow.
The Shooting Information display shows the storage card (CF or xD), image quality, AF
frame used, separate color channel histograms, exposure mode, shutter speed,
aperture, exposure and flash compensation, lens focal length, ISO speed, Metering
mode, white balance mode and compensation, and color mode.
The histogram shows graphically the contrast and
dynamic range of the image. This chart shows a scale of 0 - 255 (left to right)
with 0 being black and 255 is white.
Highlight areas will blink to indicate possible over-exposure.
Shadow areas will blink to indicate possible under-exposure.
The Lightbox mode is unique and allows you to compare two images side-by-side.
With any image in enlarged playback, press
the +/- button and then select the right side image using the 4-way controller. Press
the INFO button to scroll the views, when done press +/- to return to normal single-frame
Index mode displays 4, 9, 16 or 25 thumbnail images per screen or shows a calendar
with a thumbnail of the first image captured each day.
